jazz_semiJazz Semiconductor has launched its Direct multiproject wafer (MPW) shuttle program. The program offers quick, low-cost prototyping with access to high-performance processes, providing a vehicle to develop new designs in CMOS, SiGe, and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) and to bring these to market quickly, without incurring the full cost of a complete photomask set.

Jazz said that the MPW program is especially advantageous for aerospace and defense (A&D) customers requiring ITAR protection by handling projects directly at its U.S. headquarters without access by a third party. The Tower Group company’s A&D support, operations, and logistics team is specifically configured to support low-volume production for critical military programs at its ISO 9001-certified fab in Newport Beach, CA.

Direct engagement with in-house R&D and process experts at Jazz headquarters provides fast, effective design interfaces and support. Through the Direct program, the company offers customers rapid question resolution for design-related issues to streamline the tape-in/mask generation process as well as direct process integration feedback and recommendations to further speed time-to-revenue.

Monthly MPW runs include both CMOS and SiGe with speeds of up to 200 GHz as well as SOI on selected processes.
